A fine modern design by one of the leading carpet designers who moved away from traditional carpets during the 1940s-1950s. Following her education, Ingrid Dessau worked as freelance artist creating textile designs featuring simple, modern and elegant patterns. Her work debuted in 1953 in an exhibition at Galerie Moderne and was widely admired. Dessau worked under the legendary Barbro Nilsson, who at that time was directing the Märta Måås-Fjetterström studio. Throughout her career, she worked with many organizations including Hemslöjden, Kristianstad, the Kastalls Mattfabrik, and Kinnasand AB and she completed many commissions including projects for various embassies and the Swedish Parliament. Scandinavian Modern design extends to the countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. It inspires a sense of peace and calmness, with a juxtaposing warmth and lightness that permeates the room. It's the sheer simplicity and beauty with which Scandinavians approach their everyday life that many find so appealing. The aesthetic seems effortless and its style innate. With an affinity for nature and commitment to light color palettes, it's no wonder the interior design community and savvy homeowners have long taken notice. This modern design offers an eclectic taste that personifies this design movement and is characterized by minimalism, simplicity and functionality. Calm and muted color palettes are seen everywhere in Scandinavian interiors. This subtle color scheme has almost become the trademark of Scandinavian design. It seems to be one of the main reasons why designers and minimalists appeal to it, however, not all are muted. There are plenty of Swedish designers and weavers providing bold colors. From the perspective of color psychology, grey is the color compromise. Neither white nor black, it is the transition between two non-colors. Creating a sense of composure, calmness and relief from a chaotic world, the color grey is solid and stable yet subdued, reserved and quiet. It pairs well with the down-to-earth yellow goldenrod which produces a warming effect. These two hues couldn't be more different. Yet they complement each other perfectly goldenrod yellow helps somber grey to lighten up while the grey calms down the goldenrod hues and keeps it from bubbling over. Measures: 4'09 x 6'08.
